1 stars Sigur Ros are really a tricky bunch. Everyone seems to love this album, but the warning signs are all over the CD case before you need to even press play. It is intentionally untitled as well as all of the songs, which is good warning that there is nothing in this album. It's boring and empty. Everything is slow and repetitive, which provides for a very boring listen. It doesn't even make for good "atmospheric" music or whatever. I tried to like it, but I guess I just like music that actually goes somewhere. I mean, I'm even having a hard time describing the music. There's nothing going on, just some slow drums, some guy whining and some slow keyboards. The music is repeated over and over for 70+ minutes. Woo. Don't think about suicide or buying another Sigur Ros album while listening to "( )" because you probably will. To end on a positive note, the packaging is really nice. Props. Too bad the album sucks.

Standout songs: What you're listening to next after this album is over.
